North Carolina August 8, 1778 $1/8 Union... Fr. NC-170. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ. After the fascinating April 2, 1776, notes, North Carolina returned to typeset issues, which were easier to print. This series has multiple denominations from $1/8 to $100, and numerous motto varieties depending on the denomination. The $1/8 is the lowest and has the full motto "Union of Hearts / the Strength / of Interests." Printed on thick paper with the imprint of James Davis on the back. There are three clear face margins although it is a bit tight at the right end. The back is very well centered. Faint handling only is seen on this very choice example. Ex: Eric P.
